Betty White Dancing with Charo: The 93-year-old icon did a shimmy with Charo on stage before accepting a Lifetime Achievement award. "Can you imagine at my age still getting this?" Betty told ET backstage while holding up her statuette. "I appreciate it." Friends Marie Osmond and Regis Philbin looked on as she had the room in stitches during her acceptance speech. "So much thanks to you and your mothers and fathers and grandmothers and grandfathers," White told the audience. "And a couple of great grandfathers when I was younger."

Melissa Rivers' Standing Ovation: The television host fought back tears as the audience welcomed her to the stage for an emotional tribute to her late mother Joan Rivers. "My mother felt loved and valued by the daytime community, and for that I will always be grateful." Joan won her only career Emmy in 1990 for her daytime talk show, The Joan Rivers Show.

Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Lauer's Prank War Continues: In a pre-taped video, Ellen put Matt Lauer's head on a younger, buffer, shirtless body while delivering a hilarious challenge to winners. "Matt has generously offered to donate $1,000 of his money to charity anytime one of y'all thank Matt Lauer in your speech tonight."
